12 Spa Gifts That Will Make You The Favorite Child On Mother's Day

Moms are the real MVPs for more reasons than just, well, giving us life. They spend our entire childhood forcibly showing excitement over the hideous macaroni necklaces and stick-figured cards we brought home from school for Mother's Day. If that isn't unconditional love, we don't know what is.Those were simpler times. Now, as adults we get that being a grown-up is exhausting (yes, mom, you told us so), and pampering is priceless. So, instead of mac-and-cheese jewelry and fruit baskets, we're u...

You're Not The Only One Who Feels Guilty About Eating At Chick-Fil-A

“Do I have to use my name? I feel like I’ll get dragged through the mud.”That was one of the responses I received when I put out the call on Facebook to see if anyone in my circle of friends and familiars wanted to talk about their love of fast food companies like Chick-fil-A and In-N-Out despite their problematic conservative beliefs. A handful of people I knew, or friends-of-friends stepped forward, tentatively, before ultimately declining to be interviewed or ghosting.Their reluctance to pub...

Sahib Shihab: Danish Group

As a member of the Quincy Jones Big Band, saxophonist and flutist Sahib Shihab had a chance to travel extensively abroad. In 1959 and '60, the band was in Paris, where Sahib had an opportunity to record and experience Europe for the first time. He found the city relaxing, racially tolerant, art-focused and beautiful during the day and late at night. I know this because Sahib told me when I interviewed him at Rutgers University in the early 1980s, when he was a visiting professor there. [Photo a...

Refinery29 Readers Confess Their Amazon Hidden Gems

Amazon is essentially an IRL version of Ariel's treasure trove, famously detailed in her The Little Mermaid number, "Part Of Your World." Only instead of a cavernous hole 1000 leagues under the sea, all that "neat" stuff is housed on digital shelves across the web. And, instead of useless, "whozits," "whatzits," and, "thingamabobs," Amazon's best booty is a collection of secret weapon stuff that we never knew we needed and now we that we have it, simply can't live without — a collection we've c...

Fantasy Epics Are YA’s Next Big Trend — Here’s Where To Get Started

Fantasy books have always been popular in YA and children's literature — long before Harry Potter.

Bobby Jaspar: The Early Years

Jazz musicians in continental Europe who emerged in the 1940s held a special distinction. They survived World War II in countries occupied by the Germans. Jazz was used by them almost as therapy to express the terror of brutality and the joy of liberation. This certainly was true of the young Bobby Jaspar, a resourceful Belgian woodwind player who would go on to become one of the most significant European jazz musicians of the 1950s and early '60s. Born and raised in Liège, Belgium, Jaspar watc...
